Dolly Parton Did Not Give Elizabeth Warren Permission to Use Her Song on Campaign Trail

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) announced her presidential run to the world while the Dolly Parton hit “9 to 5” played behind her.

Playing a hit song like that one — especially a tune that highlights the average American worker — can create quite a powerful moment for politicians.

Warren’s moment, however, was a bit unearned.

It turns out Dolly Parton never gave the senator permission to use her song. Her reason?

The country music star never allows her music to be used for political purposes.

“We did not approve the request, and we do not approve requests like this of [a] political nature,” Parton’s manager, Danny Nozell, recently told the Associated Press.
